As I've done the past few years, I've opened the various subforums here on the day after Labor Day to unofficially start our coverage of the Black Friday "season".

 

Obviously this year is going to be very different but we're going to try to keep things on the forum as close to normal as possible. I just posted the thread for the main forum contest we have each year along with details of the Mystery Shirt Prize Packs that we'll be giving away over the next few months. We'll also be starting our 2021 Prize Club thread in November.

 

A slight change for this year due to the circumstances is that the "Posted Black Friday Ads" subforum has been renamed the "Posted Ad Discussion" subforum. We used to only have threads in that subforum for each Black Friday ad we posted but this year I'm going to post threads for many of the additional sales and catalogs that get posted on the Black Friday site, whether they take place on Black Friday or not. This includes things like toy catalogs, weekend sales and whatever else the retailers come up with this year to make up for not having a traditional Black Friday week.

 

Online shopping is going to be huge in Q4 this year and while we don't know what the overall quality of the deals will be, we know the quantity of sales and deals will be the highest ever. If you haven't already, you can sign up for our Instant Deal Alerts to get emails containing the best of the best deals and we'll also be using the Black Friday mailing list to notify you about new sales and deals.

 

Hopefully we'll still get a lot of discussion and have some fun on here, whether or not we have any actual Black Friday ads to discuss or not :)

Slight update:

 

Now that we're seeing a lot of big early sales (and I don't anticipate that stopping), I renamed the "Posted Ad Discussion" subforum to "Sale & Ad Discussion". In that forum we'll have threads for most of the ads & catalogs we post on the BF site this year as well as dedicated threads for each of the bigger online sales that are announced. This includes sales like Prime Day, Target Deal Days, etc. I'll be sure to note the dates for each sale in the title of each thread to make things easier.

 

Try to keep discussion of these sales in the appropriate threads. We'll use the threads to post any ad scans if they are available, advanced lists of deals that will be part of the sale, discussion of what deals everyone thinks are the best, coupon codes to use and you can share what you ordered if you'd like.

I am also seeing the Q4 projections/predictions as skyrocketing this year.
